to fight for it. joining me now is congressman steve coen, democrat from tennessee and former pennsylvania governor, ed rendell. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> good evening, rev. >> nice to be with you. >> congressman, let me start with you. the president said nobody can get a hundred percent of what they want. but you've seen the right wing republicans in the house. they don't seem to get that. >> no, they don't. they're an immature group, politically. many of them were new to politics in 2010 and they came with the idea of no revenues and no taxes at all. and they -- you think you can see what the president has had to deal with for the last two years, people have questioned the president and his working across bipartisan ways. he's tried to be bipartisan, but this group is rigid, immature. rich mcconnell wanted to beat the president. now, the president can't be beaten. they came to washington to change washington, but their main concern is reelection and they don't want anybody saying you raised taxes or you tax anybody, even the uber rich. >> but congressman, i want to
have. how're you doing, steve? there are things happening in this country, and they are not being addressed. people are calling for blood in the streets. every time they get together, hate crimes against black people. the black caucus not standing up to them. al sharpton is not standing up to them. the trouble in plaque -- in packs like rabid dogs. what ever they are, they defecate on police cars and all of that. we do not have that in the south. we also have multiple weapons. if you do away with them, the progressives will turn them loose in the streets. >> thank you for the call from georgia. juanita from michigan. caller: i am so glad that the conversation is opening up to a broader area than just guns. this is not the first time this tragedy has happened. the entertainment and mental health, those areas, they are being explored. one that i think is kind of weary -- kind of a directly related to it, that explains this act -- this epidemic, that we are seeing in terms of violence, it is possibly related to the drugs that we take. the commercials on television in -- it is so disc

[ applause ] >> stephanie: he says personal assassination. it is clear to me that obama did not win this election because of his record but he is clearly effective of smearing everyone. please allow both points of view. are you kidding? right-wingers go to the front of the line. >> absolutely. >> stephanie
very much. we'll hear from democratic congressman steve cohen in just a moment. happy holidays to you. thank you for being here. >> you, too. >> later, we'll take you to schools that are two steps ahead of the nra. hear why they think armed guards walking the halls are the way to go, plus what the president does that makes his daughters cringe. we want wait to hear that. this is msnbc. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator working together to help improve your lung function all day. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteoporosis and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking advair. if you're still having difficulty
for -- and david knock murrah, white house reporter for the washington post. great to have you here. steve, i want to start with you because you just heard senator lieberman say that he thinks it's more likely that we're all going to be going over this cliff than not. is that the sense that you have been getting from lawmakers as well? >> absolutely. first of all, i just checked about 20 minutes ago. there are no talks going on today. the senate comes back on the 27th. there's a lot of stock being put many the fact that maybe mitch mcconnell and harry reid can cut a deal, but mitch mcconnell, though by his nature, is a dealmaker, feels a lot of these same kind of tea party pressures at home that a lot of members of the house feel. he has a potential primary challenge of 2014. the tea party is very strong in kentucky. that's ran paul country. he is very mindful of that. i don't think he is in a position right now to cut any kind of deal that would invite a problem for himself at home. >> all right. when we hear senator john barosso saying he thinks the president is eager to go over the cliff becaus
hole. >> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel, democrat from new york, head of the democratic congressional campaign committee. good morning, congressman. >> hey, chris. >> a lot of things to talk about. we just heard from the white house that the president said -- he already said he was against plan b. now they're saying that for some reason it got through the house, he would veto it. where are you in terms of revenue? $400,000 is not -- is not a number that is workable for the republicans, is there another number you think would be acceptable to the democrats? >> actually i think $400,000 is about right. i actually had some concerns with the initial figure $250,000, $250,000 may make you rich in some areas of the country, does not make you rich in very high cost of living areas like long island. and so i think the president has shown a remarkable compromise going from 250 to 400. what we need the republicans to do is show their share compromise. the american people aren't interested in plan a, not interested in plan b, they're interested in plan c. plan c i
, ma'am. that is a real legitimate thing to look at, i think. host: this is a written in -- host: steve is an independent caller in indianapolis. good morning, steve. caller: my comment is that in israel they have an-16's at the school's." and the solution should be, i believe, that we need to actually gunned down these terrorists. we have done a free school zones 1,000 feet from most communities. we spend billions at the airport for security and around the world we have tried to police the world. we cannot put officers in the schools or allow teachers to carry guns in most districts. there is one district in texas that allows teachers to be armed. but i think we need to stop providing these people to our schools. we need to start putting these terrorists in body bags. host: you would like to see more liberal policies in terms of carrying guns into places like schools? caller: absolutely. the gunmen would never go to a police station. the gunmen would never go to an airport if he knew that he would be confronted with stiff resistance. the department of justice did a study, their number
